G24 Innovations is looking to further the industrial development of its dye-sensitive solar cells (DSSC) by signing a formal contract with three Chinese institutes. China National Academy of Nanotechnology & Engineering, Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry and the Nanotechnology Industrialization Base of China signed with G24i to launch an accelerated growth platform for the DSSC technology. The agreement comes just weeks after G24i debuted its solar cells at a Hong Kong electronics fair.
Commenting on the signing of the agreement, chief executive officer of G24i, John Hartnett, said, “This agreement represents a very significant opportunity for G24i to tackle some developmental challenges. With the help of these major Chinese Institutes, we are confident that we can achieve significant cost reductions in the near term and drive commercialization at an even more accelerated pace.”
The three Chinese institutes will pledge their resources for the industrialization of the DSSC with the final goal of creating advances in materials, manufacturing and scientific aspects of G24i’s thin-film technology.
